leprechaun. as a matter of fact, in my novel that margaret spoke about, about jazz, in it, billy farrell, who is one of a very large number of characters, is a jazz pianist and before he begins playing a black leprechaun appears to him, mr. mcginniss so you can assume it's the ghost of mr. mcginniss. as margaret said, in 1949 we came to the south bronx, which was an irish neighborhood, mostly. i was sort of a spaced-out kid, destined obviously to be a poet. i was this big at 13 and i was a good rollerskater and the kids were amazed and they befriended me. after a while, they recognized that i had some sort of athletic ability and because i was so spaced out, they mistook it for great courage and if they pushed me, i pushed them back. it was just like a game. so they took to me and asked me to join the shamrocks. i even changed my name from ed vega to ed mcveigh. and this is how they passed me off because most of the teams they played were other irish kids. this was a regular football team so, consequently, they listed me as eddie mcveigh. it was great fun and my friends were jimmy flynn, padd

"i give you everything everything, everything everything," balanchine was red. "and all you do is complain, complain, complain, complain complain, complain complain, complain, complain!" and mr. b. went like this. oh, yeah, he was like this and jerry was like this. and he said to him finally he said, "you know if you don't like it here, get the hell out." jerry, he shrunk and he ran. and i bet you, he went home and h

is illogical. >> reporter: peter farrell is considering moving his medical company out of california. while this tax consultant has multiple clients, studying a similar move. >> as soon as prop 30 happened i saw just a huge change in the mind set. it was almost as if, you know, well, that's the, that pushes it to the limit i guess. >> they're fed up with the situation and they feel that, like they're being unfairly treated. >> reporter: these charts show you why. the top 5% of california taxpayers, those over 250,000, pay 62% of state income taxes. the top 2%? pay 46%. while just 34,000 taxpayers out of 14 million, pay 25% of state taxes. these guys aren't dumb. they're studying how to get out legally. two i spoke that that moved, they're saving $300,000 a year in state and property taxes. mickelson would be 6 million. top states, wyoming, washington, nevada. all zero taxes. arizona half as much. lori: wow! what a sad state of affairs. melissa: the weather is only worth so much the people are saying. the beach, i can live without it. forget the mcmansion. it is all about the micro apartment

in kind of the worst strange behavior. >> brian: is it like a reality show? >> it's made by peter farrell, who made movies in a similar vein in the past and he says he's making this movie -- let's go to the full screen -- for kids and for people in their 50s who are still smoking dope. so this is an r rated movie, but he's saying we want kids, teen-agers and we want basically burnt out pot smokers this their 50s. that's a great target audience for this movie. >> brian: look at this cast. hally barey, kate winslet, richard gere, uma thurman, jason sedakis. who's who of hollywood? >> jared butler threatening to cut off johnny knoxville's private parts. harry barry blowing out a blind boy's birthday candles. a mother and father who are oppressive home schoolers. and there is some sexual connotations between the father and the son allegedly and the father is hitting on the kid's girlfriend. it's pretty disturbing stuff. and so we say, okay. hollywood, you have nothing to do with the attitudes and the culture in this country at all. when people go nuts and start doing bad things, you say well,
